Team Israel – my other Olympic lover
I am not normally a sports fan, but there’s something about seeing Israeli Olympians that makes my Jewish-American heart skip a beat.
“The Olympics are coming,” my television set screamed at me. Everywhere I looked, I saw advertisements for sporting drinks, articles commenting on athletes, and friends from London updating their Facebook status with pictures of London 2012 ticket stubs. Without delay, I began looking up profiles of all the Israeli athletes that were competing.
